on the verge of recession. contrary to media reports, governor romney's campaign is not dead. a rasmussen poll gives him an edge among voters who will definitely vote and see his tracking poll of likely voters first on this program minutes from now. no letup in tax the rich mania. the u.n. takes aim at the richer people in america and europeans riot again to make them pay for, well, for everything. and then there is this, the european beat americans at golf again. but cheer up, "varney & company" is about to begin. >> good morning, "varney & company," today is monday october the 1st. wednesday is the first presidential debate and the obama campaign spent the weekend trying to low up media expectations that the president's already won. most mainstream polls do indeed have president obama in the lead, but according to rasmussen, governor romney has an edge among certain voters. 43% of likely voters say they are certain they will vote for mitt romney. 42% say they'll vote for the president. that's a very slight edge, but 15% of voters say they are uncommitted, with a number that large, the debat
-47. >> rasmussen in 2008 had the most accurate polls from 2008. we're going to ask scott about it on the show later. we asked him the last time we had new polls about the national polls. you can look at swing state polls and get a really nugget of information, national, sort of a not maybe as interesting. when you look at florida right now where the candidates, where mitt romney is campaigning north of orlando. look at this, florida, 49% right now to 47%, that's big bump from where president obama was leading mitt romney in the all important swing state. >> yeah, governor romney and his wife were down in florida yesterday campaigning hard and getting a pretty good reception. let's look at ann romney with some of the voters yesterday. >> every year, the median income in america-- >> and you are a tremendous asset to your husband. >> i appreciate that. you know, i-- we're doing everything we can, my boys, myself just out there working as hard as we can. >> well, i really believe that your husband is going to be-- i think they will have as much as ronald reagan did, he's going to do bet. >> i felt tha
and even up, rasmussen has romney up by a couple of points and trying to keep the momentum going from the great debate performance and trying to show voters he's not the scary guy that the obama campaign makes him out to be. and stopping by in a cuban restaurant and shaking hands with the folks and getting takeout and at the a campaign event in st. petersburg looking back on the president's debate performance which many saw as a flop. >> and did you hear what he had to say? i didn't either. i kept looking for a specific plan as to what he was going to do to create jobs and i heard more of the same, stimulus, hiring more government workers and raising taxes and those things don't create jobs, they cost jobs. >> meantime on the campaign trail in ohio, president obama had the fire that was absent in the debate and saying that mitt romney was not telling the truth at the debate and trying to wiggle out of his opposition. >> and day two-- well, maybe it was extreme makeover. debate edition. but no matter what he sees, my opponent, he's a big believer in the economics. >> and president obam
-- the preponderance of evidence seems to be that romney is losing tra. the rasmussen polloes not wait democrats more heavily -- >> robopolling. >> we have an expert here in mark shields. >> we are in conservative wine country now. it is a miracle that ronald reagan won 49 states without fox news, rush limbaugh, sean hannity, drudge report, with the network's dominant and "the washington post" and "the new york times" ascended. mitt romney is being undone by some conspiracy out of a 7- eleven in falls church? [laughter] >> there was no other reagan. was unique and a political actor unlike any we have seen. putting mitt against him is unfair. he is not a great campaigner. i think he would be a great president, but he is not a great campaigner. evan is right. if the polls are 0.9% in one direction, there probably true. -- 90% in one direction, they are probably true. but you have to apply a formula by who is likely to show up. if you apply the model of the 2008lectorate, you get one result, highly pro-obama. but if you say the electorate will look more like 2004, then the race is even. i think that is
the debate we had a poll out this was from the rasmussen report. they have barack obama 50% and mitt romney 49% and this is among likely ohio voters. seems to be a tightening in voters in ohio and everybody knows that is a crucial state. >> that is the whole kit and kaboodle. the path would be difficult if he does not win, ohio. rasmussen is a little bit of outliar here. more like 45. >> 49.36. >> so three. what you are seeing here is rasmussen is a little bit ahead of the curve. if he is in fact on his daily polling picking up something that is really good news for mitt romney. >> shannon: ed, what do you think, should the romney camp take it with a bit of cautious optimism? >> they shouldn't at all. execute their game plan. debated a tremendous bebait the other night. mitt romney made himself what he needed to be which was a viable alternative who put forth ideas o of how to get the economy moving again. the destates will will close up. i predict by the next debate this will be a dead even rate, dead even in the national polls and in the states critical. three weeks after that a knock dow
. he is feeling pretty good about things in florida. a new rasmussen poll has the governor two points ahead. here at this event he was looking to the next presidential debate a week from tuesday. he says he has questions on the president from taxes to debt and spending. >> he wants another stimulus? how did the first one work out? he wants to hire more government workers? he wants to pick with winners and losers solyndra, losers in his case. we know where that leads. we have seen the last four years. we don't want four more years like the last four years. >> reporter: the debate at the university on long island is going to include foreign policy. to that end the governor is rolling out the foreign policy ball. he has a big speech on foreign policy at virginia military institute in lexington. >> gregg: tell us how big the first debate is playing out in the campaign ads. >> reporter: both sides are trying to portray the other as the bigger fiber. he has new ad from both campaigns and both are saying the other is untruthful from taxes to anything under the sun. take a look. >> i don't ha
? the preponderance of the evidence seems to be that is losing. argument. the rasmussen poll does not weight democra more heavily -- polling.is the robo- >> we have an expert here in the results, but be wh they are. we are into conservative wine country now. [laughter] is a miracle that ronald reagan without fox news, lemmel, sean hannity -- limbaugh, sean hannity, and with the networks' domince and washington post" and "the imes" ascended. poor mitt undone by a a 7-e-eleven in falls church by polling coanies?s? [laughter] >> first of all, there is no reagan. uque, a political actor unlike any we have seen. putting mitt up against him is exactly fair. but he is not a great campaigner. i happen to think he would ba good president, but he is not a great campaigner. on the polls, i think evan i right. 90% are pointing in one rectio they are probably true. -- but there is one issue here. the numbers are wrong, but you to apply a formula when -- numbers are raw, but y have to apply a formula when you look at to ow up.ng you apply the model of the 2008 electorate, you get a that is pro-obama. but if you s
'll talk to the governor then. we are two days away from debate number one. a brand-new rasmussen poll shows many of you can still be persuaded for either candidate. 15% are considered uncommitted. you are open to changing your mind. what about this. good morning to both of you. rich, chris christie predicts a whole new race thursday morning. is it a game changer or not? >> we'll see. one thing i do think in this rasmussen poll goes to this, that people are more persuadable and susceptible to argument and changing their minds than we think. the democratic convention moved the needle in this race because bill clinton went out for 45 minutes and made a case on substance largely against mitt romney and he made it. and romney's 47% remark moved the needle. there is a narrow lead for president obama. so romney needs to make the case affirmatively for his program and why it's better than the president's. this is not just a referendum. this was the romney theory going in. he needs to prove that he's a better choice for the next four years. >> people are still persuadable. 15% is a pretty big
, and today rasmussen has obama up three points. so now they have everybody. it really is a vast conspiracy because no matter what direction you turn there's just more proof that it's nonsense. i mentioned the murdoch, wall street journal poll. nine swing-state polls, and obama has won all of them. that tells you obama is probably doing pretty well in those states. you don't need these dilutional fantasy. but that's where the right-wing is. >> jennifer: we did a bit of this on the show on friday to look at the polls and look at the fox news polls too, which also said that obama was ahead, that left-wing rag. but media matters has a right-wing competitor, which is the media research center and there was an open letter to the media. it says . . . >> joy: what is your take on that, and the work that the media research center does. >> i don't think much of the center because they don't provide a single bit of research. they could have written that same letter in 2000 they never have real evidence to back it up. i believe there was an ongoing -- you know, analysis of the
it specifically -- i saw something on twitter a headline that even rasmussen has obama up three. so now they've got -- >> stephanie: the fox news poll. as well. >> they're in on the conspiracy. >> the "wall street journal" poll. you have to have rupert purr dock's -- murdoch's fox, rupert murdoch, rasmussen in on the conspiracy. it is a wildfire! >> stephanie: we're like wow. so mitt romney is running a really good campaign? [ scooby-doo's "huh?" ] >> so now fox news's strategy is to diminish the people who vote for president obama. calling them stupid. stupidest people on earth. >> stephanie: let's hear some of that. let's dive into the right-wing world. sean hannity reaching back for his reagan binky. >> you and i know this, the president walked into a mess, right? let's stop and think about it. so did ronald reagan. >> ronald reagan, 8% growth. >> we're not debating ronald reagan. we're debating obama. >> reagan had a far worse economy than obama inherited. he said he was inheriting it and he said -- but he hasn't
results that reflect the response to the debate? >> yes. they will. have you to remember, rasmussen, the poll thaig think is the most accurate, is a moving five-day sample. so if you will take a week before we have the full post debate polling. but there will be other polls. you will see a big shifting in the polls. joining it's retrievable by obama. i don't think you get a second chance to make a first impression. and i think that romney really scored. i thought when he explained to people that tax cut on the rich would not be on the rich, it was a tax increase on the rich, it was a tax increase on small business employers and they employ 50% of the american workforce. by raising their taxes, you are undermining their ability to create be jos. that was brilliant. i thought that really, he took away, all kinds of arguments from obama. while obama can wait until the performance wears off and people forget how stumbling and hesitant and detached he was, what will remain is the ground that he ceded to romney. >> greta: i thought it was significant that 67 million people watched this, t
challenger continues to enjoy a post debate bounce. the rasmussen pressial tracking poll says clearly that he does. scott scores the rates romney 49% to obama's 47%. but today's gallup daily tracking poll still has the president up slightly saturday's gallup scoring the race obama 49% to romney's 46%. nowyer with reflects the current reality it is obviously a razor thin margin. so is there added pressure on the vice presidential candidates for their are thursday night debate? and who better to ask than bill kristol, the editor of "the weekly standard." was chief of staff for are then senator dan quayle during his debate against senator lloyd benson. while he probably lost the debate the bush quail ticket won the 1988 election in a landslide. how important then are vice presidential debates, bill? welcome. what do you think? >> i think this vice presidential debate is important because mitt romney won so big last week on wednesday night. the question for paul ryan is can he protect in a way mitt romney's achievement and can he consolidate it and after the romney debate after the ryan debate in
. rasmussen shows how many people are for the president and how many for mr. mitt romney . rasmussen poll was accurate in 2004 and 8 getting the results according to the track being poll. 43 percent said they are certain to vote for romney and 42 percent certain vote for obama and 15 percent haven't decided . >> gretchen: that's huge. that is a dead heat report to look at the certainty of these people they are voting early right and these people who know in the debates who they will vote for. these debates are for the undecided it is a huge chunk of the population. other than voters turn out of the base. that will turn the election>> eric: that is 10-20 percent of the undisguisable and persuadable. throw that poll up one more second. in the bottom of that. likely voters. those are the polls that are most accurate and go after the likely voters . not just people who poll random people. >> steve: you and i talked about george washington university. they do a battle ground poll . barak 49 percent x. romney 47. and now he leads by 4 in the independents which is a better number for the former
on the gwu poll today, right? and we'll get rasmussen -- >> i didn't see gw. i saw a "washington post" abc poll showed two points among likely voters nationally. >> in was two on gwu, too. politico was two points. rasmussen and gallup at 5 and rasmussen at 2. >> polls it show obama up 11 in swing states. that sounds high to me. but in any case, obama's ahead, romney has to change something. he has a chance to do it. >> all right, john harwood, thank you. >> today is the start of the fourth quarter. and joining us is teach stanley, chief economist for peerpont securities. the lead story is how trade is slowing around the world. all of europe's problems getting exported to the rest of the world. what do you think this means just in terms of the fourth quarter and maybe a look into next year? >> good morning, becky. well, i think right now the u.s. economy is really slow in part because of what you guys were just talking about, the election. i think a lot of businesses have gone to the sidelines and they're waiting to see as you all discuss, we have a huge choice to be made. and businesses do
to the latest rasmussen poll, taken after wednesday night's debate, the governor leads president obama in florida and virginia and the president maintains his lead in ohio. so, what are some of the biggest deciding factors for voters in these states? an advisor to democratic senator bob casey and former staffer for democratic governor ed rendell and brad blakeman, a former assistant to president george w. bush. good to see both of you. >> good to see you. >> arthel: we'll dissect it state by state and, florida, it could come down to florida, you have the heavily courted hispanic mayor deeply divided along party lines and strengths and challenges we'll talk about for the president and governor in florida. donna, you start. >> well, i mean, i think it has been accurately voted that florida now qualifies as a purple state because of the divisions you cited. and i think the president's message has gained traction in florida, but i also think that the very stringent voter i.d. laws in florida hafner jiezed some significant democrats -- have energized voters and, will help the president on e
. rasmussen has him up two among likely voters. my theory is split the difference. it is somewhere close, romney has lost ground but not the kind of ground that we are hearing. most importantly the president is 50 percent approval and romney's favorables are going up. >>gregg: it is a national popular election. that brings me to the real clear politics electoral map. you have to win the states that have the big numbers attached. not election were held today, here is what you would have. obama at 265, five shy of what you have to get and romney at 191. i would say the polls and that electoral map is the best thing that could happen to romney. when it was a tie race, his natural instinct to play it safe overrode everything. now this is no doubt that he is behind, not fatally behind as pat and doug said, but he is behind the he has to change course. obviously, wednesday night is the last opportunity to change course. i think he started changing last week, took all of the ads off, put a new ad in, just himself, talking to the american people. >>gregg: let's lay the new ad with governor romne
will you please every single tracking poll. >> again, chris, if you look at rasmussen over the last week, there's been days when they're neck and neck. you look across the board, it's very close. >> i'm on the phone and i can tell you the polling numbers off the top of my head, you are wrong. in ohio, he's down. in virginia, he's down. tell me the battleground states where governor romney is ahead. tell me the one. >> in ohio, he's within the margin of error. in florida, he's within the margin of error. and again, if it's such a horrific campaign, and you know a lot about horrific campaigns, then he wouldn't be as close as he is. going back to the point about scratching beneath the surface, mitt romney was the one that went over and over again through specifics. president obama couldn't go anywhere near his own record. and you know why, because he's failed for four years. he's got nothing to talk about. all president obama could talk about is mitt romney's plan because he doesn't have any plan of his own. all he keeps talking about is how badly mitt romney would do, not how well he's don
: and speaking of numbers this is rasmussen -- [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: said obama 332 electoral votes, romney at 206. >> wow. >> stephanie: and it is only going to get worse, isn't it john? >> unless the governor can turn it around. paul ryan was supposed to be the guy to get people excited about mitt romney. and i do give him credit he gave a good performance. he lied through his teeth, but he won the debate in terms of performance. >> stephanie: yes, it is winning by cheating. if everything you said were true, i suppose it would be a different story. by the way what does it say about paul ryan that obama still holds a double-digit lead in wisconsin? >> it says that paul ryan is still running for his congressional seat and not giving it up. there are paul ryan for congress signs popping up all over wisconsin. >> stephanie: it seems like he thinks he may need a backup plan of some sort. >> a day job if you will. >> stephanie: jeanie in ohio. >> caller: hi guys. john good luck with your new show tonight. >> thank you very much. it will be a lot of fun.
wall street journal poll shows president obama's lead narrowing just a little. that's the rasmussen poll. new at ten top of the hour, you will not believe how many immigrants are getting government assistance like food stamps and welfare. only a small fraction of immigration applicants are denied. the judge is coming up on that one, 10 a.m. eastern. all right. back to nicole, netflix shares, what leading the s&p 500? >> that's right. and first of all, netflix is volatile stock that we're talking about not only because everybody has it, but because of the moves on netflix. today the number one performer on s&p 500. now 4 1/2% on the heels of what we heard from research, a company blog and in the equity research blog they actually featured netflix as a top company in tech and in research and stuff, so, there you go. now jumping and leading the way, on a day where you have the markets, virtually flat. stuart: yeah, all right. you're right. it's a volatile stock. it came all the way down from 300 and change all the way down and now it bounces around 4 or 5% on any given day and that's w
bit more insight into the polling. a rasmussen poll fromepo the weekend -- is more from the vice-president on the weekends and florida. [video clip] >> they're spending a lot of time telling you what barack obama and joe biden are against and what we have done. the attack everything. the truth of the matter is that nowhere is it more clear what they would do that in medicare. let me start by giving you a few specific examples. to make a examples. number one, they have laid out clearly, they say, that what barack obama and i did was we endangered medicare, that we stole money from medicare and we did this to get obamacare and all this. you see it in ads and everything they say. nothing could be further from the truth. everyone of you in this room who is on medicare or has a mother or father on medicare knows that since barack obama acted, your parents and those of you on medicare have more benefits than before. host: back to your calls on whether the vice presidential nominees will impact your vote? raymond is a democrat in waco, texas. caller: good morning. i want to make a comme
